The Forest Tribe of Treeguard is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ed Abbey's head with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, feral children, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.891 billion Treeguardians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Treefort. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Treeguardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,317 trillion berries a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 166,924 berries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dinosaur breeders have a yabba-dabba-doo gay old time in Treeguard, supervisors in Treeguard commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, and the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Treeguard's national animal is the treeguard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnoticism.

Treeguard is ranked 242,124th in the world and 276th in Wintreath for Most Avoided, scoring 1.16 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
